Eek - the headless horseman!

Just kidding!


Not quite up to Bev Doolittle painting camouflage standards, but...

That is funny, especially the headless shot. Is Zim trying to hide from you! Happy Weekend!

The art of blending :)

Giga said...

Świetnie wygląda na spacerze po lesie. Pozdrawiam.
It looks great on a walk in the woods. Yours.

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

Ha! Zim is hiding from the paparazzo--you! I love his expression as he's peering from the branches.

Nancy Claeys said...

Would love to play hide and seek with Zim any day.

Kalyan P said...

beautiful colours...nice click!

diane b said...

Great camouflage except for the lovely white splash on his nose.

nene said...

Helloooo! A little privacy please!
Could someone get me a role of tp, the leaves are saturated with snow or bristtly like pine cones.

Camouflage? Huh! just a little privacy. If I wanted to be camouflage I would have been born a Zebra or palamino.

Ha, you humans! You and your fancy porcelain facilities. You're all 'elitests'.

Łucja-Maria said...

Although it is hidden, I can see its beauty.
Lovely pictures.
I greet the Polish far.

Primitive Stars said...

Morning, oh how great is Zim in the bushes, love those pictures....Francine.

Karen said...

LOL.. what is the name of that artist who blends the horses into the scenery.... do you know the one I am referring to?....

Janey and Co. said...

I agree...I think Zim is hiding...Cute.

Hanne Bente said...

Great image series showing a horse :)

eViL pOp TaRt said...

Zim is such a photogenic horse!

Kathy said...

He probably thinks you can't see him!

Loredana Donovan said...

What a lovely horse! Wonderful shots. Thank you for visiting my blog :)

Dianne said...

Zim lives in a wonder land!!
lucky horse

Montanagirl said...

Ha - Great photos Theresa! All he needs is a cammo jacket, and he'd be invisible! I bet he thought he was anyway!

EM Illustrator said...

Good morning, he's trying to hide nicely there. Great photos

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,
Great Zim photos! Bev Doolittle does a great job as well.
How could Zim still move through such dense brushes? Guess you too got those briar weeds...
Hugs to you,
Mariette

Ramakrishnan Ramanathan said...

Great camouflage & brilliant images !

oldmanlincoln said...

I didn't even see the horse until I got near the bottom of the photos. My eyes and my age must be responsible.

Beth said...

I love those pictures of Zim!

Molly The Wally said...

Hey Zim you playing hide and seek? LOL! For one minute we thought you'd lost your head. Have a super Saturday.
Best wishes Molly

georgettesullins said...

Peek-a-boo. Beautiful shots.

Rural Revival said...

If I can't see you, you can't see me!

Our Neck of the Woods said...

Wow, he is really hidden in there! Good job, Zim!

Judy said...

I love it that you always have fun with your camera!

Birdman said...

A 'where's Waldo' for horses. Camo horsie!

I think he's having fun teasing you....he is a cutie pie....

Flat Creek Farm said...

Ahhh.. a Hidey Horse! So cute, and fun. Have a great weekend! -Tammy

nic.b van es said...

wat heb je hem er heel mooi opstaan.

IanH said...

I still think you need to saddle him up and help him over his shyness.

Linda said...

It just makes me wonder what was going through his mind as he stood there in the brush. Was he imagining himself a young colt in the wild? Or was he just scratching is back on the brambles? Clever reference to Bev Doolittle's work.

Lisa Gordon said...

I think he sees you! :-)

Donna said...

Ah, he's trying to wear a bit of the green!

Joop Zand said...

I think he is playing a game with you.

Pom Pom said...

WHAT a pretty horse! Gorgeous shots today, TexWis!

joeh said...

Why do I suddenly feel like watching "The Godfather?"

grammie g said...

Grace

Margie said...

Haha, so cute!

Kjell T. Evensen said...

Can you see me now? :-)

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

So funny, I thought of Bev Doolittle as soon as I saw the first picture...now what will I say in my comment? (My sister-in-law collected her pictures; there was always something to do at that house if you got bored with the conversation ;>))

rainfield61 said...

If the horse can smile, it will sure smile,

for it is thought to be headless.

Joseph Jameson-Gould said...

I would never have thought a horse could play hide and seek!

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Where's Zimdo?

parker said...

Some days you just want to be left alone and not see anyone. Hide out and do nothing!

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

He's playing hide and seek with you. I love the headless one. Always fun to see what Zim is up to.

Muffy's Marks said...

I think he's playing hide and seek. But where can you hide when your a horse. He has found a pretty good place.

JM said...

Very cool! At first I thought it was some big wild animal. :-)

sandyland said...

These photos are very endearing to me !!

Rajesh said...

Wonderful shot of the horse among the trees.

Sally in WA said...

So if he hides behind the tree, you won't see him? Too funny!

Gail said...

Relaxation techniques...be one with your surroundings.

ellen abbott said...

playing hide and seek?

Sylvia K said...

Hey, he's good at hiding isn't he!! Fun shots, particularly the headless one!! Love it!

don said...

Zim can see you, but you can't see him! A fine, obscured Zim series. I'm glad you took the reduced view of your horse.

Raggedy Creations said...

He's being camera shy today.

Pix at Under the Oaks said...

Pretty cool! I could still see his cute little ears.. :)

Keeping a low profile!

Stephanie said...

She didn't want to be seen.

Bob Bushell said...

He is hiding from you, lol.

Karen S. said...

I spy a handsome horse!

Filip and Kristel said...

It is great when horses have so much freedom to run around.

Greetings,
Filip

Patty Woodland said...

I'm sure Zim enjoys some quiet time in the woods

Paula said...

Really love your "hiding horsey" photos and the comments are as entertaining.

Breathtaking said...

The headless horse shot is fun:)

Karen said...

We can still see you!

Inger said...

Oh, what great pictures of him! And thanks for your comment today. I know you will come by. It's kind of weird to write about your whole life, I guess I'm a bit insecure.

thirtysevenandcounting said...

You should try a Bev Doolittle-style drawing/painting of your own. ;-) We're fans of her work.

Looks like Zim has his eye on you in image #3.

Carver said...

Great shots. He's a beauty hidden in the forest.

Chatty Crone said...

He is shy! lol sandie

Jeanne said...

Hmmm... This got me to thinking about how wild animals are so much better camoflaged than domestic ones.
Your beautiful buddy can't hide in there.

Robin Lamb said...

T, funny just how well he blends in!

Michaele said...

Yes, I was thinking of Bev too. These are awesome shots. Such a pretty horse.

val's alentejo blogspot.com said...

Are they not just the cleverest of creatures.
This makes me laugh.
He thinks that you cant see him.
Great shots T. Zim is a lovely looking horse.
You might remember one of mine Surprise, hid in my oleanders and thought i couldnt see her.. ):

Deanna said...

hmm, wonder what he was doing all covered up and hiding...I have never known a horse to play hide and seek, but then maybe yours is really special.

barbara l. hale said...

What a clever boy is Zim! Hiding in plain sight. Made me chuckle.

Jill said...

These are fantastic!

Betty Manousos said...

I love this sequence. I would love to see the hidden horse as a painting!

I so enjoy your horse. They are such great animals.

Gunilla Bäck said...

Fun shots!

Angela Häring-Christen said...

I love to see Zim in the wood. Zim has a good live.
In Switzerland we have seen a Video about big hors farms in Argentina, Canada, USA and we were shocked, it was horrible, it was so so sad. The horses have a painfull life.
So I enjoy to see your animal :-)

Susan, a Sometimes Blogger said...

Oh, well done! Just shows, there's always a photo opp :D)

Kate said...

Looks like a game of peek-a-boo!

Brian King said...

If I didn't know better, I'd think he was trying to sneak off the compound! haha!

pattisjarrett said...

"Maybe she won't see me if I stand behind this tree." Not a chance, Zim, she's got your number.

Hilary said...

Give him a striped shirt and it would be just like looking for Waldo.

Pat Tillett said...

Great post! She really does kind of blend in.

Lynne said...

and hiding from . . . Tex? . . .

Leovi said...

Yes, that horse is very well camouflaged.

hitchwriter said...

I recently visited a national park and I didn't let the leopard or the tiger beat me with the camouflage :D

I will share pics soon !

These are pretty nice ones :D

Sketchbook Wandering said...

Happy Zim in that environment!

bon bon said...
